The Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine and valine are essential amino acids, and thus cannot be made in the body.* BCAAs are critical for muscle protein synthesis, and because BCAAs can be used as fuel during intense exercise, BCAA supplementation can help to preserve existing muscle tissue.* In addition, BCAAs can support the recovery process by promoting the normal repair processes that take place after exertion.* BCAAs also play an important role in the maintenance of proper immune system function and the support of healthy aging.*

Of the eight essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body, the three branched-chain aminos Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine are of key importance. Based on their unique structure, activity, storage and metabolism, BCAA's have become a staple in the lives of many athletes and physically active individuals. They account for nearly 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein, and play a number of key roles in the repair and growth of muscle tissues.
